Business Licenses, Violations, and More

license law group


Launching a business is exhilarating. Ensuring you have the proper licensing is not. Oftentimes in the hospitality industry, license issues are overlooked until far too late, causing business deals to change dramatically, or even fail. Don't let that happen to you.

At License Law Group, we provide a full service of licensing needs for Chicago's hospitality industry.

Principal Attorney Daniel Rubinow spent years as a business license prosecutor for the City of Chicago. He learned intricacies of the licensing system and routinely took licenses away from businesses that were not compliant with the City's regulations. Today he uses that same expertise to help businesses gain and maintain proper licensing.
